VYI EMAIL INFORMATION
VYI Lacrosse and other VYI programs use email as a primary means of communication. Occasionally emails are sent to all VYI families about other sports. If you "opt out" of one of those communications, you will not receive any email communication about lacrosse. Please do not opt out. To confirm that you will receive emails, login to your account by clicking the Edit My Account link at the bottom of the website's left menu. After logging in, click your name or the name of any of your children to edit their personal information. Make sure the “Do Not Email” field is not checked.
Vienna Youth, Inc. Lacrosse (VYI Lacrosse) participates in the Northern Virginia Youth Lacrosse League (NVYLL) for all girls and boys age/grade divisions.
Under NVYLL rules, all registered players are expected to play for clubs that serve specific public high school pyramids. The three high school pyramids served by our program are Madison, Marshall, and Oakton. Players residing within the boundaries of those high school pyramids are eligible to play for VYI Lacrosse.
Those players who reside outside of the Madison, Marshall, and/or Oakton pyramid boundaries, but still wish to play for VYI, may request a waiver from NVYLL to play for VYI. Waivers are considered on a case-by-case basis. For further information about the waiver process, please contact Mary Forde, Commissioner - VYI Lacrosse, at
NOTE: Waiver requests to play for another NVYLL club besides VYI Lacrosse will not be processed/accepted/approved if submitted to the Commissioner after player assessment sessions/tryouts (boys, girls, “A” team, B level, Modified Field) have commenced for VYI Lacrosse (this applies to all players).
AGE / GRADE DIVISION CLASSIFICATIONS
In 2022, girls will continue to play in grade-based divisions (based on the player’s school grade for the 2021-22 school year) as follows:
- Grades K/2
- Grades 3/4
- Grades 5/6
- Grades 7/8
In 2022, boys will continue to participate in age-based divisions at 8U, 10U, 12U and 14U divisions.
- 8U: All players must be born between 09/01/2013 and 08/31/2015

- 14U: All players must be born between 3/15/2007 and 08/31/2009
Both boys’ and girls’ divisions are divided into conferences based upon the skill level of the players. For the 2022 season, the NVYLL conferences are “A” for advanced players, “B” for intermediate players, and “C” for novice or less experienced players.
Boys’ teams will be divided into A, B and C conferences at the 10U, 12U, 14U age groups. Boys 10U-A, 12U, and 14U will play “full field”; 10U-B and 8U will play “modified field”.
Girls’ teams will be divided into A, B, and C conferences at grades 3/4, 5/6, and 7/8. Girls 3/4A, 5/6 and 7/8 will play “full field”; 3/4B and ALL K/2 will play “modified field”.
VYI Lacrosse needs coaches and other volunteers!
Please note that the number of teams we are able to field is directly related to the number of coaches we have. As in past years, due to a number of factors, we anticipate that our registration numbers may very well outpace the number of coaches available, particularly at the C level. Therefore, we are looking for new coaches! Coaching is a great way to learn the game and contribute to the community. If you have lacrosse experience and/or any amount of coaching experience of any kind (soccer, football, basketball, hockey, etc.) please consider coaching for us. (Note: VYI will pay for coaches' training offered through U.S. Lacrosse and other training sources.) Also, if you know of anyone without kids in the program, but who love to coach/work with kids, please ask them to consider coaching for VYI. Email
for more information.
